Accessible Wet Floor shower Case Study | York | North Yorkshire

Published: 26 November 2020

Bathing problem:

Mr & Mrs Smith’s dated 70’s style avocado green 3 piece suite consisted of a bath with built-in shower, basin and WC that was located in a separate room.

Struggling to use the bath, they wanted a modern yet safe and accessible suite that didn’t compromise of style.

Design Solution:

With the assistance of their daughter, Mr & Mrs Smith booked a free design appointment online to arrange a visit with a designer who would visit their property, view their bathroom suite and aid them in gathering advice on accessible bathrooms.

Mr & Mrs Smith were visited at home by More Ability Senior Designer Nigel, who along with their daughter, discussed their bathroom requirements, wants and needs.

Planning for both the present and future requirements, Nigel accounted for the possibility of mobility deterioration while also surveying their suite to provide an adaptations quote dependant to final fixtures and fitting choices.

With Mr & Mrs Smith being open to ideas, Nigel used his design knowledge and accessible bathroom expertise to create a safe and spacious accessible wet floor shower design.

Nigel then invited Mr & Mrs Smith to our Harrogate accessible bathroom showroom to present a detailed CAD design allowing them to visualise their new suite. He also assisted them with picking their final fixtures and fittings and, with limited transportation availabilities, also collected and dropped Mr & Mrs Smith to the showroom and their home.

Accessible Wet Floor Shower Installation:

A large accessible wet floor shower with bespoke built in Corian bench was installed by More Ability Multi-skilled fitter Martin, giving Mr & Mrs Smith the option to rest their legs when showering.

To create enough space for the possible future use of a wheel-chair the wall separating the WC room and the bathroom suite and bath was removed.

Accessible sanitary ware installation also included a raised height WC and wall hung basin. Floor and wall coverings included modern marble effect grey tiles and low maintenance anti slip vinyl flooring.

Accessible bathroom storage included a wall hung under basin cabinet creating additional floor space, a bespoke built in storage cupboard as well as a wall niche in the shower area, where Mrs Smith wanted to keep a sentimental ornament. Finishing touches also included stylish curved grab rails to provide additional mobility support and modern heated tower rail to keep Mr & Mrs Smith’s towels warm and toasty whilst they shower.


A dated 70’s style bathroom with difficult to use bath and separate WC was transformed into an easy access spacious accessible wet floor shower with additional safety features.

The new stylish suite consisted of savvy storage solutions alongside modern fixtures and fittings.
